How to Knit a Cool and Breezy Button Curtaincomments (17) March 19th, 2009
Yarn and buttons make a splendid combination! Especially when it's mother-of-pearl buttons and 100% linen yarn.
- Size 13 straight knitting needles
- Louet Euroflax sportweight 100% linen yarn
- Big-eye sewing needle
- Mother-of-pearl buttons, 1/2-inch diameter (I began with more than 300)
- Curtain rod
- Café clip rings
14 stitches x 13 rows over 4 inches or 3.5 stitches per inch (14 divided by 4 = 3.5) and 3 rows per inch (13 divided by 4 = 3.25).
K1: knit one
K2tog: knit 2 together
Yo: yarn over
Yob: yarn over with button
K1, *yob, k2tog, yo, k2tog* repeat to the end of the row, K1.
K1, (*yo, k2tog, yo, k2tog* repeat to the end of the row), 5 rows.
Repeat these six rows until the desired curtain length.
